It's a series by Jim C Hines, beginning with Libriomancer, now on the third book. Our hero is a libriomancer, meaning he does magic with books, specifically by reaching into the books to pull out things he needs.

Cool, sounds like a perfect character for a cross with The Paper from Read or Die. :)

Presto was the "magic-user" from the Dungeons and Dragons cartoon, with a magic hat which he could use to conjure anything he wanted (usually stuff like rope, non-mystical weapons, etc.) by chanting horrible rhymes ... and early on he had a tendency to backfire.

This thread has been quiescent for a while, so I'll throw another character into the mix. Maybe I'm making the person too obvious, but that might get things moving. :)

Normal stats, but IQ 12 -- both bright and personable.

Advantages
Claim to Hospitality (mostly local taverns)
Charisma +1
Precognition (Minor gossip and local news)
Serendipity (Only to avoid significant harm)
Wealthy

Disadvantages
Compulsive Generosity
Enemy (Well-meaning relative)
Minor Delusion
Sense of Duty (Relative)
Truthfulness

Quirks
Old-fashioned manners, including full introductions with a calling card.
Flirtatious (but politely so)

Skills
Area Knowledge (local community)
Artist (in some interpretations)
Carousing

OK, first day's hint before I make an early night of it: This is a character who has been both on stage and in the movies.

Next clue (if anyone is still playing): If the Delusion is true, both Serendipity and Precognition can be replaced with a powerful Ally.
